It started off badly as 4 girls trooped around aimlessly laden down with baggage for the best part of 30mins as we couldn't find the reception from the car park. Whilst that was our problem it didn't help that when we called for assistance even the girl who worked for the place couldn't help.
Anyway, we finally got to our room to be greeted by a mound of dirty linen which we had to manoeuvre around to get through the door... Following this we were pretty pleased with the apartment. The lounge and kitchen was spacious, as were the bedrooms which is ideal with 5 girls!
Anyway, so the place was beginning to redeem itself and whilst we noticed a few 'sticky' areas overall things were ok.
So we start getting ready to go out and are a little humoured by the en suite in the main bedroom. It is a wet room fair enough but wet cubicle is more like it. You could actually embark on all the usual bathrooms tasks at the same time. The shower covers the sink and sprays all over toilet too... Oh and I forgot to mention that you have to lean arkwardly whilst standing in the shower to avoid the basin. Very odd!
Anyway, eventually we realised that we were missing our fifth bed. Which at more than £25 for the privilege is frankly a rip off anyway but as I said was also on this occasion completely absent. We tried calling and failed to get in touch with reception as it was closed. As a consequence my friend slept on the sofa under what make shift bedlinen we could fashion together. It did not make for a pleasant night's sleep. Totally rubbish service and not what you pay over £40 for!!!
I'll quickly mention the other rubbish stuff. The main shower turned out not to work when we came to it in the am-5 girls in an apartment. Not good!! Additionally no extra loo rolls in the place-I repeat 5 women!!!
Panel at the bottom of the kitchen units fell off on to my foot. Apart from it hurting I did not appreciate having to scramble around on the filthy floor to sort it out.
Have I put you off enough yet??
We've stayed in apartments in a few places now and these are easily the worst. You can get a lot more for this sort of money so please do.
It says 5 star. Not a chance!!!
